Hell yeah, they are an embarrassment. Left them in no doubt as to my thoughts on the matter, spat at their feet, stubbed my fag out on the back of their hand, the lot.

Who did they play in the next round after they knocked Celtic out?

Same team the Nobads will play after we beat them home and away?

My response was to the tit that was laughing at us actually winning a game away from home. Just stating there's far worse results, including his own side in almost the exact same circumstances (away, first game, new manager)

Fair enough. Personally I cheered when Killie scored the winner

At this stage of the competition it doesn't really matter how you get through, as long as you get through is the key.

Correct. 

Hopefully everyone negotiates a good few rounds this season. 

 

Apart from Rangers, Celtic and Killie 👍🏽

Yes and no.

Of course the main thing is to get through but as each match counts towards the Coefficient (rather than the overall result), we really need clubs to be winning both matches against teams they should be beating.  

We started this year in 20th place. Our clubs see benefits (started competitions in later rounds) every time we move up a spot from 19th.  That 19th position could have been achieved had - 

  • Celtic beat Lincoln Red Imps
  • Rangers beat Progres Niederkorn
  • Aberdeen beat Fola Esch
  • Hearts beat Birkirkara

This season, the countries we need to out perform are Serbia, Switzerland, Croatia, Greece, Cyprus, Denmark and Czech Rep.  Beating teams home and away in the early rounds helps us do that, although getting through the ties and to the group stages are what really makes the big impact.

What a strange thing to say

Why? It's like grown men wandering around on holiday wearing their team strip. Weird. 

If you need to belong to a "tribe" so badly that you have to always show their colours then there's something wrong with you.

This is very true. Hopefully we'll see all 4 sides doing well this season and if we can get 3 or 4 into whichever Group Stage, it would only benefit the position. 

Obviously progressing out of the group would be even more useful, but one step at a time.

Given the number of rounds required to get through, I'd be shocked if there were 3 or 4 into group stages.

We need to have our teams starting to win both legs against teams that should be beaten in both legs, like the examples given above though.

Yep. Think I heard that the games last week, was the first time all Scottish sides had won in Europe, in the same week, for 19 years. 

Quite sad really but hopefully an indication of improvement.

I think it was more of an indication of the quality of the opposition. However, we've been know to start slow so pleasing to see no slip-ups. Another 4 wins this week are achievable.

Indeed they are.

Can't help but fear there will be at least one draw in there though.

Sorry RB, my Saddo face was at the stat to detriment of of an upvote, and it's not half as miserable looking as my own.   Virtual up-vote for an improvement of course.
